Sejiri Refuge Discussion

47552 Love the idea, really creative! I have some recommendations for you though. Onto the birds!
First, if your play group doesn't mind un-cards, then Crow Storm is quite good. Other then that, Storm Crow itself, despite the memes, is not a bad card and is great in bird tribal. Murder of Crows is a really good finisher as it will deter board wipes and swing for 4 a turn. Mindshrieker is another good finsher. Swan Song and Essence Scatter are both great bird themed counterspells and Wing Shards is a great bird themed spell. Crookclaw Elder is a good draw engine and Impaler Shrike and/or Thieving Magpie add a good bit of draw. Keeper of the Nine Gales adds some great board control and helps disrupt the tempo of your opponent. Augury Owl gives some nice foresight to what is coming up and allows you to change the order or throw away the cards that are not needed. Finally, while not a 'bird bird', Soulcatcher is awesome at killing the opponent after some sacrifice shenanigans.
I also have some general recommendations for the deck. Firstly, Culling Dais is awesome. It can tap and sacrifice a bird if that bird is destroyed, turning it into another card for later on. It gets even more ridiculous with Thrummingbird increasing counters. Deluge gives all of your birds pseudo-unblockable and Gravitational Shift beefs up your birds while your opponent's ground troops get weaker. Kangee, Aerie Keeper pumps the power and toughness of all your birds while Aven Mimeomancer makes your tokens bigger. Door of Destinies does similar things to Kangee. Tezzeret's Gambit is a nice draw spell that also adds counters. Glory stops damage cold. In this deck Grafted Wargear is better then Barbed Battlegear, despite the synergy with Soulcatchers' Aerie. Cataclysm is an awesome board wipe, especially with Soulcatchers' Aerie. Masako the Humorless is nasty surprise for your opponent, especially with Glory chilling in the graveyard. Finally, with land I recommend using Nimbus Maze and Sejiri Refuge. I also recommend having 20 lands, but if 18 works, by all means, keep using 18.
I hope this helps! If you would like any help with cuts, just ask, I'll be happy to help!

I would recommend Favorable Winds, Warden of Evos Isle and maybe Gravitational Shift and Sprite Noble. Also you will need some mana fixing so you could add Sejiri Refuge, Tranquil Cove and perhaps Azorius Chancery.

Here are my land suggestions:
1x Fetid Pools
1x Maze of Ith - not really a land because it doesn't tap for mana, but it's a good card
1x Nimbus Maze
Here are the land cuts:
1x Blighted Fen
Which would leave you with a manabase of:
1x Fetid Pools
1x Maze of Ith
1x Nimbus Maze
1x Opal Palace
This manabase can largely be ported over to Zur, except for the lifegain taplands like Jwar Isle Refuge, which I think are generally just okay but are good in this deck because with Oloro out, you can play it and draw a card. I tried to keep the prices pretty low, because I didn't know your budget, but you can add Hallowed Fountain and stuff if you like (especially that one since it's cheap). Bad fetches like Bad River and Flood Plain get better if you spring for shocklands.

It solves a problem that's been happening for years. New players get a bunch of cards,just kind of pile them together to make a Standard deck, go to FNM, then find out their mana base isn't legal after they've carefully looked through and made sure to use Standard-only creatures/planeswalkers/whatever.
To newer players, Coastal Tower, Azorius Guildgate, Boreal Shelf, Sejiri Refuge, Tranquil Cove, and Temple of Enlightenment are all identical. Imagine the shock they had when they found out they couldn't use Azorius Chancery but Glacial Fortress and Hallowed Fountain were legal. "Why can't I use my dual land that's worse? It's just a land!"
Meandering River's cycle of being reprinted fixes this issue. It allows a budget dual land that's affordable to new players, but is also always Standard legal.
As far as I know, WotC hasn't ruled out printing other uncommon dual lands, only that they will always print Meandering River's cycle in any Standard set.

Your mana base is not consistent enough to make the deck work fast enough (in playtesting I always had problems with the mana).
You need more dual lands, not expensive ones, such as Caves of Koilos super cheap and effective a full list of cards Id recommend going into the land slots being:
To speed up the deck as well you could also include one or two more mana rocks, Thran Dynamos Iconic Masters version is currently about $2.5
Also if you wanted too you could base the deck around a recursion combo with Second Sunrise and Devouring Greed, just find a way to recurr the two spells, add some cheap tutor effects (Diabolic Tutor, Increasing Ambitionand boom

Hi! Fun deck in my favorite tri-color combo! Let's see if I cant't help ya out!
usually I give suggestions for decks as a whole, but seeing how your mana base is just basics, I'll focus on that instead so as not to info dump haha
This is the basic template for a mana base that I use. It's consistent but not optimal; it gets the job done.
this list will run you around $50, which is very budget relatively but I understand if that's too much for you at the moment. Investing in your mana base is the safest thing to invenst in because you can use all of these for any other Jeskia build, or scrap the parts for 1-2 other multicolor decks. If you stick with this deck forever that's okay too, because even though you may change the decks' parts, strategy, and synergies, your mana base will remain relatively intact.
Shivan Reef x1
Sulfur Falls x1
5x other utility lands, specific to your commander/strategy
Hope that helps you! Good luck!

Nice deck you have there.
I do have a couple suggestions:
Due to the fact that you are running Sublime Archangel, I would recommend utilizing creature tokens to create Burst Exalted triggers. Creatures like Evangel of Heliod will provide a HUGE number of tokens, translating directly to power and toughness for Rafiq when he attacks.
You could use a bit more artifact support as well:
It is important to keep your equipment safe, Voltron decks far to often fall victim to their own pride. Opponents can easily target your equipment and remove it without having to weaken Rafiq first. Giving your equipment Hexproof is a surefire way to keep your artifacts where you want them.
This Leonin combos really nicely with Puresteel Paladin, as you can bounce around your equipment to different creatures at instant speed.
Additionally, consider these lands:
A standard Commander staple due to its versatile nature and speed.
This is the only Check Land you are missing from your colour cycle. Replace Sejiri Refuge with it.
Tapping for your devotion (in this case, White) can significantly accelerate your board state. You have a lot of White Chroma active with all of your permanents, use that to your advantage.
Another Unblockable trigger, for statistic probability. Better safe than sorry.
A bonus Exalted trigger.
Hope that helps!

Hmm I suggest you try get some sort of dual lands, maybe Flooded Strand, Hallowed Fountain, if they are too expensive maybe try get some Glacial Fortress, Prairie Stream or Sejiri Refuge. Add some more card draw aswell, Serum Visions, Think Twice, Telling Time any of these would help a lot. Maybe have a look at some U/W Control builds floating around on tappedout to give you some other suggestions. Anyways hope this helps a bit.
